Google updates Gmail for Android, brings hashtags to web search
Google has released an update to its Gmail app for Android, alongside a revamped web search with new social-networking features. The Gmail app (<A href="">free</a> Play Store) brings a new interface that is intended to have a cleaner design when in conversation view and while checkmarking multiple messages, while the app now clearly shows when account sync is off. <br />
<br />
The company has also improved hashtag support for its basic search experience, as noted in a Google+ <a href="" rel='nofollow'>post</a> that was <A href="">spotted</a> by <em>Engadget</em>. When users enter a hashtag search, a Google+ sidebar presents relevant results from Google's own social network.<br />
<br />
Users can click on links to search the hashtag on other social sites, however the sidebar lacks support for results from competing services such as Facebook and Twitter. <br />
<br />
The Gmail update is already available from the Play Store, while the hashtag search is initially limited to users in the US and Canada.
